Re: iPhone 4S apps keep crashing, safe mode, etc.

Hagg, Honestly the restore is going to be our recommendation. You can restore it using the same iOS firmware and re-jailbreak it. But beyond that, there are too many variables when it comes to software and the best thing to do is to start with a clean slate and redo the phone. I know it is a sucky s...

Re: Ipod Classic 120gb Broken Headphone Jack

Scott25,

It's a common issue...Your headphone jack needs to be replaced. Currently they are $19.99 with no charge for installation. You can find the part on our site http://www.rapidrepair.com/shop/1826-he ... assic.html.

I hope that this helps.

Re: wifi and signal issues

More than likely the issue is the wi-Fi Chip underneath the permanent shielding on the board. You can try cleaning the spring contacts on the antenna to see if that will help with the signal issues.

If you don't lock the screen, will the phone work fien off the charger? Does the power button and home button both seem to respond fine?

Re: Upgraded Zune 30GB hard drive to 80GB. Having issues.

The IDE ribbon may be damaged, which can give yo the error 5 message. Also, the drive may be bad, but if you brought it brand new, thats a slim chance. You may need to purchase the IDE and try it again.

We do offer repairs on that also if you want to have us install your drive and IDE ribbon.

Re: Iphone 4s "searching for service"

Yes I referring to that connector. As I stated, it can be hard to get that one fully seated. However, you may want to inspect the board in that area, it's connectors, and the antenna itself to ensure it isnt ripped.

Check the cellular antenna connector near the bottom...it's hard to set into place properly.

Re: Upgraded Zune 30GB hard drive to 80GB. Having issues.

I would open the device back up and check to make sure that the IDE ribbon is plugged in properly...all connections really. Once a drive is installed properly, it should format once plugged into your computer with the Zune software running. Also, what make and model drive is it? Did you verify that ...

Re: Help! My phone got dish soap on it!

Brian, Don't try to charge the phone. Grab some Isoprophyl Alcohol (90% or greater) and a toothbrush. Dip the brush in the alcohol and then thuroughly clean the areas in question. Then allow it to sit and dry, or to speed things up you can grab your girlfriends hair dryer and blow dry the area. Let ...

Re: Missing songs in library

It sounds like you may have some sort of filter enabled in iTunes or you have deleted the tracks. If you notice on the left side of the iTunes there is the bar that should show various items such as "Library", "Shared', "Playlists" and other items. Under library, if you click music, that doesn't bri...

Re: iphone 4 not reading sim after screen replacement

Try cleaning the contacts for the SIM on the board and the SIM card. Beyond that, there may be an issue with the board. Can you try a different SIM card?

Re: iPhone 3GS Unusual problem

@ RyanHallas, So it appears you replaced the LCD screen and Glass digitizer on your phone. Have you tried opening and ensuring that all the connectors are fully connected to the board? Loose connections could cause all these problems. As far as the time, that will correct itself once it connects to ...

Re: iphone 4 not reading sim after screen replacement

@bigclive,

Assuming you didn't have issue with the SIM being read before the repair, I would remove the board and re-seat it in order to assure that the board is sitting flush and correct inside the phone...You shouldn't have to force the board down.

Keep us informed.

Re: Is this motherboard bad?

@chrisdudley24,

The board is probably bad....have you lifted up the shielding on the board that covers the chips and processor to see if there is corrosion in there? Also, let it sit in the Alcohol to loosen up all the corrosion first.

Good luck, and keep us informed.

Unfortunately, no it will not. Although they look similar, the screens have different mounting brackets and will not be able to be secured into the device properly.
